Our project with Oral-B

What do they think of Oral-B?

What do those around YOU think?

We're now just over halfway in to our project with Oral-B. We've had a good bit of experience using the paste now so it's time to see what everyone else thinks!


A huge number of us have shared our first impressions on Oral-B's greatest paste to date in the starter survey. The feedback from the team so far has been amazing to hear! In addition to hearing what we think, a big part of the project is to find out what everyone around us thinks too.

Submit a conversation report here

There are a number of ways we can help others experience the repairing benefits of Oral-B Gum and Enamel Repair, here are a few of the great examples from team members so far!

  • Savvycircler Georgiep often heads out with the ladies straight from work, so left some toothpaste in the office bathroom where they all get ready. Everyone's been happy to try some and share their thoughts!

  • Loads of lucky people have had the chance to try Oral-B after savvy circler MiloG held a testing circle at work with 14 people coming back the next day armed with tooth brushes to try it out!

  • As well as sharing at work, try handing out samples to people we know with big families, that way everyone in the house will get a turn and have the opportunity to share their opinion.

  • Savvy circler Montymoos has been showing why they're a great team member by handing out coupons, convincing a nurse to give it a go. The results came back and it was a big thumbs up!

Remember, everytime you get chatting to someone about Oral-B, let us know by sending in a conversation report! It only takes a moment and means we can measure how far our brilliant team is spreading the word on Oral-B! It also helps us collect even more great insights for the brand.

Got some Ask your friend sheets to submit? You can do that here

@all: Share your ideas on how you can spread the word below!

Best toothpaste I have used in ages, my teeth are a lot less sensitive, my gums are looking healthier & feeling better, very happy definitely changed my opinion of what to buy when it runs out. My boyfriend has also been using it & noticed a huge difference in his teeth & gums, both of us are really impressed.

Loving this toothpaste. Tooth sensitivity has gone no bleeding gums. All round mouth feels fresher and healthier. Can't wait to try a whitening too

Was not enjoying the taste or texture of the toothpaste at first but now both myself and my husband both agree we are very happy with it and our teeth are much less sensitive and the gums havent bled since using it. Very dissapointed though to find out that I am unable to purchase more of the toothpaste and neither have any of my friends/relatives who I have given vouchers to as they are not stocked in stores near us.
I would have loved to have tried the whitening version but cant get hold of any!

I am spreading the word by allowing both my own and my partners family to try the second tube of toothpaste for one full day - so 2 brushes. I am finding this a good good way to get honest opinions form my family.

I took my second tube of toothpaste on tour to let my parents and sister try it out. I also had some friends round to the house and told them to bring a toothbrush. I have also shared on social media and through word of mouth. Reactions are proving varied so far with it being somewhat of a 'marmite' experience. Some love it and others hate the flavour and texture.

I took a picture and place on watsup as a status, was a great way for my friends to know

I have continued to be impressed since I started using this toothpaste. It has definitely helped to improve my tooth sensitivity. I like the texture of the toothpaste and feel reassured by the 'coating' left on my teeth, which I know some testers are unsure about. I feel this extra protective layer provides a barrier for my teeth during the day and night after brushing. I will definitely continue to use this toothpaste after the project has finished.

I have been using the toothpaste for nearly 2 weeks, i have definitely seen an improvement in my tooth sensitivity,my teeth look and feel extra clean but im still not keen on the texture .family and friends who have used the coupons have mixed reviews some find the texture dries their mouths out too much .

I am still not keen on the texture and taste to the toothpaste. However other toothpastes used to sting my mouth when brushing but this one does not do that which is great. I do have a little tingling on my lips and gums when I have finished. I don't feel yet like it has improved my sensitivity but I have only been using for 1 week. Have given the other tube to my parents for them to try and give me feedback. Will leave some more feedback when I have been using for 2 weeks and see if I have noticed any other changes.

Shared on Snapchat and also gave my second tube to a family member to try. Facebook is also a great way to spread the word.

My second tube has been passed around the office, with people taking it home to try and bringing back the next day to pass on. I'm getting a lot of good responses, but I think this could have been even better if we were supplied with small sample tubes to give out too.

Andrea2000 • 26/07/2017 - 22:16

I'm fairly happy with this toothpaste and i'm pretty sure i'm going to continue to use it instead of my old toothpaste after the project has finished. The best thing about it is, my teeth still feel clean at the end of the day, i dont have any fuzziness!
When i first started using it, my tongue went a bit numb and felt odd, but a few weeks in and that doesn't happen at all now.
I'm also not sure how you know if the "gum and enamel repair" is working. Do you need to have quite bad teeth to actually see a difference? What does it do to them, so you know that bit is working?

Having been using this toothpaste for the past 3 weeks, I can honestly say that my sensitive teeth are now far more tolerant of cold food: I was even able to eat Ice Cream without having to favour one side of my mouth, for the first time in years.
My husband has gum problems and he feels that his mouth has not felt this good for a long time. We almost wish that we could go on our 6 month dental check-up
( not something we normally wish for) and get a glowing report from our practice's Hygienist which would be a first and a change!
Friends I have spoken to would have loved to have tried it but not sure about sharing by getting them to pass a large tube around is very practical/ hygienic in the short span of the project?

I am loving the toothpaste. The sensitivity of my teeth have improved immensely. My whole mouth feels fresh and clean. My gums do seem to be looking and feeling a lot better. I think it will be a waiting game for the enamel repair.
I have been spreading the word and giving out the vouchers. Would have been much easier with small sample toothpastes though. I have given the second big tube to my mum so she can give it a go. So far she's loving it.

helenrachel123 • 27/07/2017 - 12:21

I am loving this toothpaste my teeth and gums feel much healthier and my teeth are definitely less sensitive, I gave the big tube to my mum and she loves it and decanted some of the other ones into little pots for friends to try mini toothpastes would have been great. I have been spreading the word about this toothpaste at every opportunity

allenora • 27/07/2017 - 12:21

After 2 weeks my opinion has changed. 4 days of unusual and marked sensitivity which I have not felt for ages then disappeared and brushing since has been a pleasure.
Oral B tubes are often difficult to manage in terms of releasing the contents and this was the same. I could have helped myself by enlarging the space but I am too lazy to search for a tool. But I managed to release enough for a good brushing every day.
I am satisfied that Gum and Enamel Repair is happening and will continue to use this toothpaste.

Toothpaste is good but nothing special. Think the starter kit was quite disappointing and would've been much better with small sized samples. I ended up putting paste into little pits from my work (a dental practice) and gave my colleagues and some patients some away with them. Had I not had this available it would've been a struggle to allow as many people to sample this.

Craigo71

Craigo71 • 28/07/2017 - 13:08

I remain impressed with the product and will continue to buy it. I have less sensitivity and my gums look much more healthier. I have found friends and colleagues reluctant to participate as they either don't need to buy toothpaste at present and it's the type of product you buy when needed. They have have been given vouchers but it would have been much better if we received smaller samples, like the travel size toothpaste you see in Boots etc for people to try themselves.

FunkyChic • 28/07/2017 - 13:27

Absolutely loving this toothpaste now and it has even tempted me to switch brands once I have used the rest of the free samples up I am defiantly going to be giving the gentle whitening one a go as I always wish for whiter teeth all the time but my sensitivity puts me off from getting them done professionally.

mattadam • 28/07/2017 - 20:51

I like this toothpaste for the taste and long lasting freshness, it has also made some improvement to my receeding gums but tooth sensitivity has not really changed from when I used my normal toothpaste. With all that in mind i am not sure I would swap when the price is so much higher.

fizz8x

fizz8x • 29/07/2017 - 08:47

So far so good! My teeth are sensitive normally and I must say whilst using this product it has helped, not stopped all together but made it more bearable. Not much difference in regards to my receding gums but will soldier on until free samples have ran out and then see the difference. Overall I'm impressed with this product and will probably buy again. Gave some coupons out to family and waiting in their feedback

Gutted, went to the shop thinking I would get the whitening toothpaste. Gutted, big Tesco and it doesn't stock it. It doesn't stock any of the range.

Well just over 2 weeks in to trying this toothpaste and I am totally convinced it really does work my bleeding gums have healed up completely and my teeth are less sensitive and I feel my mouth is healthier as a result. I am definitely not changing away from this for fear of undoing all the good work!

carolingua • 29/07/2017 - 17:58

Love this product. It was a nice taste and does what it says on the packet. Been spreading the word and giving out the money off coupons. I think it might have been a good idea to also include a few small sized samples to give out. As I think this would have helped promote it further.

mi_goncalves

mi_goncalves • 30/07/2017 - 11:31

I am really glad I am a part of this project as I suffer from occasional sensitivity and it can last for weeks - but with Oral B Gum and Enamel Repair it didn't last a day and it hasn't happened again.
I really wish I had more samples to give away as We don't really have a lot time at work to try it. I did my best asking my family to try and spread the word and they really liked but I wish I could reach more people!

bristolrobin • 30/07/2017 - 16:25

So pleased to have been a part of this project. My teeth are much less sensitive now and my mouth feels really clean and healthy. I had a lovely trip out to a trendy ice cream parlour with my 'tester' friends, who are also impressed with the toothpaste. Thank you Oral b and the savvy circle 😀

Jeanesj

Jeanesj • 30/07/2017 - 18:04

Best toothpaste ever! My mouth feels clean and healthy, I don't have to pull a face at the overpowering minty-ness of toothpaste anymore, and I even think my teeth look a bit whiter!

Reetieanne

Reetieanne • 30/07/2017 - 22:56

I was just reading through some of the comments and in response to the person who was looking for the whitening version of this toothpaste - I'm sure when I was in boots the sign said that particular one was exclusive to them. So may be worth a look there. Please correct me if I'm wrong - suffering with severe baby brain at the moment!

Have really been impressed with the results from Oral B Gum and Enamel Repair, so much so, that I have been out and bought two more tubes ready for when my tube is finished.

Juda

Juda • 31/07/2017 - 11:27

Have been using the toothpaste regularly and my teeth are definitely less transparent. My teeth feel cleaner but I am not convinced that they are any less sensitive. Have been spreading the word but a few sample tubes would have helped.

gryffie

gryffie • 31/07/2017 - 14:53

Left the tester tube out at mums coffee morning and had a good few people enjoy it but they would all enjoy their own samples instead. IMHO this needs redone with samples we can hand out as its such a limited reply we can give.

LiteupLee

LiteupLee • 31/07/2017 - 16:22

Enjoying using the toothpaste as I do feel it's giving my teeth a good clean. The only concern I have is it seems to leave a residue on my gums, which is fine but it then starts to peel away in long, stringy clumps? At first, I thought it was my skin peeling off my gums, but have come to the realisation that it's not actually my skin and therefore, must be the toothpaste. I've never had this happen before and freaked me out to begin with. Not sure I'd buy it when I've finished with this trial.
Agree with some comments on here that it would have been better if small sample tubes could have been sent out to share around, people don't want to try the toothpaste out after other people using it, which I completely understand as I tend to make contact with the tube with my toothbrush so, I certainly wouldn't want to to do that knowing other people's toothbrush had been in contact with the tube.

Had my check up at the dentist today. Dentist has suggested using a spot of toothpaste on a flossing brush to help with sensitivity.

Fantastic product! I wish I had samples to hand out. Definitely recommend this. 💋

Our recent house guests used the toothpaste and commented on how fresh and clean their teeth felt, would have been nice to give them a sample tube but handed a coupon.

Princessemma13

Princessemma13 • 03/08/2017 - 12:49

Been using the toothpaste for about 4 weeks now, I'm finding it ok but I don't think it's working on sensitivity as I had a bowl of ice cream and I still got that ouch sensitive feeling on my lower teeth! Maybe if I use it over a longer period I may see a difference! But it's ok in freshness and cleaning! Can't say I'm going to buy it though!

I just cant believe how quick time flies by. One minute we are getting the kit and next the project is about to end.
Well I have truly tested the product. I have used practically one tube of toothpaste for myself. I used to feel the slightly gritty texture and initially thought it strange. To be honest it does not feel at all gritty now. That's because I have got so used to the texture that I don't notice it anymore.
My mouth feels ultra fresh and therefore really clean. I do have sensitive teeth but after using this on a regular basis. The sensitivity has melted away, don't even feel anything. I must admit it did not work like magic at first and I did not expect it to.
It took a bit of time a few weeks for the sensitivity to go and for my teeth to feel normal. So I can eat and drink now without thinking I am going to get brain freeze.
I did have a bit of trouble with some bleeding I think that was my gums but that settled down again took a few weeks but I think the toothpaste fixed the problem..
I cant say it has whitened my teeth as I was focusing on sensitivity and how the paste appeals to me.
shame Proctor and Gamble did not provide lots of samples smaller size. I don't like to use other people toothpaste.
All the paste is used up more of less and the coupons all gone. People I spoke to was from two camps , either I am sticking with the toothpaste I have used for yrs or I am willing to give it a go
My opinion its great , dones the job perfectly

bakewell • 10/08/2017 - 18:01

I was hoping to get some late feedback from people that I gave coupons out to. However a lot of them have had difficulty locating stockists so this hasn't happened. I don't think this project is showing a true reflection of the product. I agree with other people that small sample tubes would have been better and that, coupled with the fact the toothpaste has been hard to purchase, has hindered the feedback. Personally I like the toothpaste and my contribution has been by spreading the word literally by word of mouth. I am sad that the project for me has not been as successful as others I have participated in :(
